Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst is certainly making himself at home.
With the Badgers having the majority of their recruiting class done by the end of November, Chryst and his staff have spent the two weeks in December and two weeks in January in the recruiting contact period traveling around the country to spend time with the program’s commits.
Whether it be in the home or at the prospect’s school, Chryst – or his staff – has done his best to make sure he makes his presence known.
And thanks to the power of social media, here are some of the snapshots from Wisconsin’s coaching on the road.
